Notes:
Fletcher & Nye (1984) stated:-

Hannemann cited as type-species Phalaena octomaculata Linnaeus, [1771], a nominal species not originally included in Anania. At the same time, however, Hannemann placed octomaculata as a senior synonym of guttalis, a nominal species originally included in Anania. Under the Code, Article 69(a)(iv), this designation constitutes the fixation of the originally included name as the type-species. Incorrect type-species. (1). Phalaena octomaculata Linnaeus, [1771], a nominal species not originally included in Anania, and not linked with one of the originally included nominal species when designated by Westwood, 1840 Introd. mod. Classif. Insects 2 (Synopsis Genera Br. Insects): 106. (2). Pyralis funeralis Hübner, 1796, a nominal species not originally included in Anania, and not linked with one of the originally included nominal species when designated by Shibuya, 1928, J. Fac.
